Girls Aloud‘s Nadine Coyle has revealed that she doesn’t consider herself friends with the rest of her bandmates.
The singer had previously confirmed that the girl group would reunite for their 10-year-anniversary in 2012, but in an interview with Heat magazine, she claimed that she didn’t want to spend her free time with the other members of Girls Aloud.
They’re not my friends. I don’t speak to them or socialise with them. I have my own friends that I’ve grown up with and the girls are very much my colleagues. Are you friends with your workmates? I wouldn’t socialise with them outside of work.
An inside source also told the magazine that Coyle was jealous of Cheryl Cole‘s solo career success, revealing: “Cheryl has always hated the fact that Nadine has a better voice than her and is always given lead vocals but the sad truth is that clearly the better voice doesn’t matter, as Cheryl’s had a string of solo hits and Nadine’s solo career has fallen flat on its face.
“Nadine is shocked at how well Cheryl has done given her ‘lack of talent’. She and Cheryl have never been friends.”
They also claimed that for Coyle, the reunion was “about the money”, adding: “She will make a fortune from this reunion tour and she knows it.”
In June, it was reported that Girls Aloud would be recording a new album to coincide with their reunion, with a source claiming that the feud between Coyle and Cole was “water under the bridge”.
Yesterday, meanwhile, Girls Aloud‘s Nicola Roberts downplayed reports that she’d branded Madonna a copycat on Twitter, after several people commented on the similarity between her single ‘Beat Of My Drum’ and the pop icon’s new track ‘Give Me All Your Love’.
